Fox Nabs Oliver Sacks Medical Drama From Alex Berger, Lee Toland Krieger, Fabrik & Imaginarium As Put Pilot

  • Deadline
Exclusive: Fox has given a put pilot commitment to a hourlong medical drama inspired by world-renowned neurologist and bestselling author Oliver Sacks, from Blindspot executive producer Alex Berger, director-producer Lee Toland Krieger, Fabrik Entertainment, The Imaginarium and Warner Bros. TV, where Berger and Krieger are both under deals.

Written by Berger and to be directed by Krieger, the Untitled Oliver Sacks Medical Project is inspired by Sacks’ books The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat and An Anthropologist on Mars. The fictional, character-driven medical drama explores the magic and wonder of the human brain. Part medical mystery, part character study, the project is a hopeful story about the power of empathy as a tool for healing.

Berger executive produces with Krieger. Henrik Bastin and Melissa Aouate executive produce for Fabrik, a Red Arrow Studios company, along with Jonathan Cavendish for Imaginarium.
